Rohan Mangalorkar’s unique concept of using the regular laadi pav and turning it into something deliciously mind boggling gave birth to Pack a Pav that has won the hearts of many. With a variety of fillings to offer, we laid our hands on the Tandoori Sriracha Chicken Pav which is stuffed with juicy Tandoori Chicken, hung curd, red cabbage and served with deep fried fingers. A total twist on regular Indian food that makes a bold impact on your taste buds.

The Lil Flea has many options in terms of a variety of cuisines to gorge on. But what our Indian palate can’t skip is a mighty aromatic lair of Mexican flavours. Shacks like the Mexican Express and Tacobao serve some exquisite and lip smacking authentic Mexican food. We gave a shot at Tex Mex Nachos by Mexican Express and Fish Tacos with pineapple salsa by Tacobao which summed up the umami experience.

Apart from the coffee and almond that we tried, they do offer some unheard combinations like Chocolate Wasabi, Paan Choco Chips, Thai Red Rubies and more.
